    More men are dying from melanoma skin cancer than women in the UK, Cancer Research UK is warning as the country's heatwave continues. Rates of the cancer, which can develop in sun-damaged skin, have been rising in both men and women in recent years. Late diagnosis may be part of the reason why men are faring worse. Melanoma is treatable if it is diagnosed early - the charity is urging people to take care in the sun and get any unusual skin changes checked. Melanoma death rates have improved for women in the last 10 years, but not for men. Michelle Mitchell, chief execu

    A course helping some of the most vulnerable people in the country by teaching them to be comedians is proving so successful that it is being socially prescribed by NHS trusts and private practices across the country. “I’ve taught comedy for 10 years, and students often told me how much stronger, more resilient and happier they were after exploring their personal histories through standup comedy,” said Angie Belcher, founder of Comedy on Referral and comedian-in-residence at Bristol University. “That inspired me to prove that the models, exercises and games used in a standup comedy c

    Thousands of men are being urged to check their risk of prostate cancer amid warnings that more than 14,000 have missed a diagnosis during the pandemic. New figures show that the disease accounts for a third of those not treated for cancer during the pandemic, making it the cancer most likely to have been missed and putting lives at risk. Experts said many men had held off visiting their GP which meant they could now be missing out on vital treatment. NHS figures suggest nearly 50,000 fewer cancer diagnoses across the UK in the Covid crisis, including 34,000 in England. Experts

    About 1 in 10 fathers will experience a depressive episode within the first year after a baby is born but no Scottish health board has any specific measures to monitor their mental health, BBC Scotland has learned. Peter Divers, 39, says he hid his feelings of depression for months after his second child was born in November 2016. "It was the darkest time of my life," he says. "I woke up every morning with a knot in my stomach. I felt like there was a big dark cloud following me about." Peter didn't tell anyone what he was experiencing, including his wife, for five months.

    Men working in low-skilled jobs or care, leisure and service roles are more than three times as likely to die from Covid as professionals, according to new data. Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures show there were 7,961 coronavirus-related deaths registered among the working-age population (those aged 20 to 64 years) in England and Wales between 9 March and 28 December last year. Nearly two-thirds of those deaths were among men (5,128 fatalities). Analysis by the ONS shows men who worked in low-skilled occupations (699 deaths) or care, leisure and other service occupa

    Findings The men spoken to had been struggling for years with poor mental health and suicidal thoughts and feelings. Despite experiencing many well-known risk factors for this group, many opportunities to help them at critical points before they reached crisis were missed. Importantly, the men spoken to didn't see community-based support services, focused on fostering connection and community, as relevant to them before they reached crisis. "There exists a vacuum of responsibility in which opportunities to engage and support these men, before they hit crisis point, were neglecte

    Screening for prostate cancer could be possible in the next five years, according to one of the UK's leading experts. Prof Ros Eeles, from the Institute of Cancer Research, said advances in genetics and medical imaging were making it possible. About 50,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with the disease each year, and nearly 12,000 die. NHS England said prostate screening had been notoriously tricky. Despite it being one of the most common cancers, there is no equivalent of the regular mammograms that detect breast cancer. There is a blood test that looks for levels of

How can those wellbeing initiatives be seen as relevant to less well-off men earlier in their lives? How can wellbeing initiatives maximise their impact for less well-off men by: increasing meaningful connections providing a sense of purpose.

    Becoming a father can be the happiest time in a man's life, but for some it can bring unexpected feelings of anxiety, stress and guilt. Until recently, mental health concerns for new dads were little understood and, often, went unaired. But some men who have experienced postnatal depression hope telling their stories will encourage others to open up. When Stephen's daughter was born five years ago he knew he was meant to feel happy but instead began to think his wife and newborn child might be better off without him. "You don't get a chance to sit back, take it in, relax and enjoy it

    After two cases where men took their own lives, coroners have called for changed to be made to GP IT systems. Coroner Emma Brown has raised concerns that a fault in the EMIS system can cause a GP to miss appointments due to consultation lists not being updated properly. The problem was reported in July 2020 and has still not been fixed. According to an inquest, one man who took his own life had been described as ' extremely anxious' after attending Accident and Emergency for a physical ailment and became very concerned about his health. Mr Pardeep Singh Plahe, an NHS pharmacist, wa
